Hyderabad, Dec 29: Former Andhra Pradesh chief minister K. Rosaiah and 14 others were Wednedsay booked in connection with the alleged allotment of a prime land to a private party.

The petitioner alleged that Rosaiah denotified the property in violation of the norms. The land was in acquisition of the government and was allegedly handed over to a private developer for constructing a commercial complex.
